Spanish Language and Culture

The AP Spanish Language & Culture course will provide high school teachers with an overview of the four sections of the AP exam which include: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. We will review the recent changes to the exam and discuss the College Board Equity & Access Policy. Participants will share ideas for teaching AP Spanish via an active discussion format. Teachers will also prepare an AP level activity or unit plan in small groups during the week and present on Friday as the final culmination of our summer institute experience. The week will involve a morning session that highlights key Spanish language content and culture and university level expectations of incoming freshman students studying Spanish while the afternoon sessions will consist of exploring AP related aspects such as how to implement the new scoring guidelines and how to prepare students for the persuasive essay. All participants will be encouraged to share ideas and strategies.
